    Map My Ride App

    Has anyone used the phone app "Map My Ride"?
    I discovered it last week and started using it. I am questioning the speeds I get out of it. It is supposed to use the phones GPS for location, distance elevation speed etc. I just finished a ride and there is no way I did over 30 mph on any part of that ride.
    I was wondering if anyone else has used this.
    Thanks
    George

    The strava app is very popular, that works pretty similarly. But it works better for distance training. The GPS does not work too well for specific speed or shorter distances.

    No, this was a quick 12 mile ride on the W&OD trail in VA. This is my primary route.
    I do not race or compete in any way. I wanted this app to do several things:
    1-Keep track of when I ride
    2-Keep track of the distance I ride
    3-Track average speed of each ride
    4-Keep track of my Food and Nutrition
    5-Keep track of the other athletic activities I do.
    On the surface, it seems to do all of these things, I just question the average speed of my rides. My basic bike computer puts my avg speed at 15.4 miles per hr for all rides this year.

    You are way off in forum location. Move this post into general, or maybe road.
